An Exercise in Giving and Receiving

givingreceiving

Affirmation: I AM aware of the thoughts and energy I offer the world. For what I give out to the world I receive. I AM the creator of my life.  

I’ve been studying A Course in Miracles and the lesson I just completed was on Giving and Receiving.

When you think about giving and receiving there are times when we able to give more, and other times when we are put in the position to need to receive more.  At one time or another it may not feel completely balanced but overtime life does seem to create a balance with giving and receiving. Also we need to keep in mind that sometimes things come in different ways. The energy is the same, its just that the form it chose to manifest in was different based on an individuals perceived need.

 A Course in Miracles teaches us that what we give out comes back to us in equal amounts. Whatever you offer is returned to you. The idea here is to be truely conscious in what you give out, how much you give and the feeling attached to it, because what you give comes back. This isn’t just centered around physical items, help, etc. This includes what you think.  Think negative thoughts, those get sent out and that energy comes back to you in one form or another. Think positive thoughts, those get sent out and that energy comes back to you. Now this can really put things into perspective. Think of all the thoughts that run through your head every day. The ones you latch onto, the ones that quickly pass by, the ones you voice. Listen to what you are thinking and/or saying because whatever it is, is energy you are giving and that energy is coming right back to you like a boomarang.

So the question here is: how much love energy are you giving out throughout the day? And by love energy I mean unconditional love, acceptance. Catch yourself throughout the day and notice what you are giving out. If it’s something you wouldn’t want back, stop yourself and change the energy.

Here’s the exercise from A Course in Miracles I’ve been practising.

Affirm the things that you would like to have given to you and offer them to others.

  • I offer everyone peace.
  • I offer everyone love.
  • I offer everyone success.
  • I offer everyone prosperity.
  • I offer everyone support.
  • I offer everyone compassion.
  • I offer everyone wealth and financial abundance.

As you recite what you give out feel how much of it you are giving. Then pause for a moment to allow the universe to give that energy back to you. Take your time with each affirmation and really feel what you are giving and receiving.  Do the exercise in front of the mirror and repeat it when it comes to mind as you go about your day.

Harmonic Convergence – December 21, 2012

Album Cover for Sol Starz [Solstarz.com]


I AM THAT I AM! I am awake and aware of my life purpose. My divinely empowered spirit has flowered into its full form. I am my higher self in every moment, every breath. I walk the path. I AM the way. I AM THAT I AM.

That’s my mantra for 12.21.12. By now, I’m sure you’ve heard a lot about this date. It’s the end of the world. The end of the Mayan Calendar. The beginning of a new world. The Age of Aquarius. Whatever you have heard, it is a much anticipated date and a very exciting time.

I was first made aware of the date and time back in the early 90’s when I had first discovered the Internet. My experience with the Internet led me a on path of discovery as I navigated my way through hyper-links learning and reading about things I hadn’t been exposed to before. Because of my curiousity and spiritual nature I was always drawn to everything I read about the date, so I’ve known since the 90’s that the date never meant “the end of the world” as so many people like to refer to it. Instead it’s a movement into a new state of consciousness.

When you hear its the beginning of a new world, what it means is that you have the ability to move into a new dimensional state of being.  You will live in a state of mind and stream of consciousness that equates to the vibration you choose to be in. And it will be an amplified state of being.  So when you wake up, you might not see a different world, but if you choose to heighten your vibration you’ll see the magnificence and awe of the world around you, and that’s the new world you will live in.

So on 12.21.12 BE IN THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE VIBRATION YOU CAN BE IN. And do whatever it takes to be there. Gratitude. Humility. Joy. Happiness. Excitement. Faith. Trust. And for me it includes a whole lot of FAERIE DUST. You are responsible for your vibrational tone. You are responsible for our vibrational tone. The world’s. The earth’s. The universe.

For many years I thought I would go to Machu Picchu, but instead I’ve decided to make my way to Costa Rica. I’ll be in Los Angeles for the first part of 12.21.12 and then I’m leaving on jet plane… Whereever I AM you can trust I will be meditating and vibrating in the highest possible vibration I can achieve. Setting the intension and affirming all that I AM.

I encourage you be there with me. Whereever you may be. Join me and the  World Parliment on Spirituality for the Harmonic Convergence on 12.21.2012.

Love, light and faerie dust,✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

Vow to BE HAPPY

Affirmation: Happy, Healthy and Holy AM I. I vow to speak words of light and love and to refrain from complaining.

I went to a kundalini yoga workshop with Gurumakh and Tej at Golden Bridge yesterday to celebrate the autumn equinox. It’s a magical time of year so doing a workshop working with powerful yogis seemed like the perfect way to celebrate.

Tej warmed us up for the first half, then Gurumakh took over and cooked us. It was an intense class but well worth it. We had one meditation where we sat knee to knee with a partner holding each others hands with elbows bent slightly raised. Seems simple enough. Until you have to hold it for 11 minutes. I held on, but I can tell my mind certainly went to that place where I thought, “Oh my god. My arms are dying! Is it over yet??!”

I gained a lot from the workshop. I always do when I attend one, but there was one message from it that rang strong for me and so I want to share it with you. Gurmakh challenged us to vow not to complain all the way through to the winter solstice, Dec. 21, 2012. She told us it has been proven that everytime we complain it affects the chemicals in our hypothiamus gland and depletes them. Even just being around it listening to someone else complain affects us as well. It turns our brain to mush!

I made the vow and I challenge you to make the vow too. So any time someone asks you how you are doing say, “I AM great!” And anytime you catch yourself about to speak anything but words of light and love, stop yourself and remember your vow. Then see how it affects your life over the next few months. I’ll report back on my results. I’d love to hear what the vow does for you too.

If you are ever in Los Angeles or New York, I recommend checking out Golden Bridge even if kundalini yoga isn’t your regular yoga practise. It’s a beautiful place to take a class with a very loving, supportive spiritual community.

I Love To Laugh

Affirmation: I see life’s humor. I breath, laugh and relax into the beauty of the moment and lead the way with love.

Laughter is such a powerful healing tool. It helps us to see life from a different perspective when we can stand back from our situations and see a humorous twist. When we do this we realize that maybe we were taking things a little too seriously.

Is there anything in your life that’s been worrying you? Are you letting your worry over the situation be your driving force? Your worry will only be empowered to perpetuate your state of worry. STOP! Let’s shift the energy and allow the power of love to lead the way.

Now the exercise!

Take a deep breath. See the situation before you. Pull yourself outside of it. Be your omnipotent God presence. Your I AM. Laugh! Just start laughing and keep laughing. Laugh until you realize how silly you were for being so serious. Laugh until you cry. Laugh until it hurts. See the humor in the big cosmic joke the universe has just played on you. Feel the magic!

Have a very happy day! And keep the laugher flowing.

Love, light and faerie dust,✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

Faeries!

Summer Solstice ~ Living Fae

Affirmation: My wishes and desires have been heard. They are carried on the wings of faeries and through divine timing arrive at the perfect moment. I AM the creator of my wishes and desires.

Can you hear them? Listen closely. They are the silent whispers and giggles dancing among the leaves and flowers. They see you. Can you see them?

Whether you can see and hear faeries or not. Whether you are believer in their magic or not. Whether you are believer in their existence or not. Trust! Trust that just because you can’t see, hear or touch something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Believe in the power within you to manifest your dreams and wishes into a reality and have faith that they coming. Have faith in divine timing.  There are many reasons why things do and don’t happen when we think we want them to.

Let go of any controlling thoughts on how your wishes and desires should arrive. Allow them to show you their magic. Its amazing how they’ll pop up on you at the most unsuspecting times if you let them.

Oh, the beauty and abundance of summer.  All the seeds we planted are in full bloom.  Enjoy your summer and enjoy receiving everything you’ve been asking for. Remember to take notice with joy and excitement when they arrive and be sure to express your deepest gratitude for all the blessings bestowed upon you. The faeries tell me there are many.

Happy July 4th!

With love, light and faerie dust, ✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

I AM

Affirmation: I AM that I AM. My wishes are fullfilled.

I’ve been working with Dr. Wayne Dyer’s I AM WISHES FULFILLED mediation. I’ve found it to be both a very powerful meditation and have now seen my very own wishes fulfilled after repeated work with it, so I want to recommend it. This is where today’s affirmation comes from.

I combined my meditation work with listening to his audio book, WISHES FULFILLED: Mastering the Art of Manifesting. You can very easily just do the meditative work with I AM WISHES FULFILLED but I think either listening to the audio book or reading the book is a great compliment because Dr. Dyer provides a really good understanding of “I AM,” which comes from St. Germain’s The I AM Discourses. I read The I AM Discourses quite a few years ago, but Dr. Dyer helped me gain a more clear perspective and understanding of it, which I believe has given me a whole new perspective on the world and how I AM choosing to think and live my life today.

So what does “I AM” mean? I AM is you. I AM is me. It’s very common for us to use the words I am when we are speaking about ourselves. But how “conscious” are we of what we are saying.  I AM is GOD. I AM is your connection to the divine source of creation. In Sanskrit I AM is “So Hum.” When you say I AM you are affirming something about yourself, connecting with the divine, and you are creating your future. So when you say I AM remember to be conscious of the words you use that follow for you are telling divine source what it is you wish to create in your life.

I AM THAT I AM, is the mantra that Dr. Dyer tells you to use in the meditation. “That” refers your intension. What you do is write your intension down and then in meditation “that” takes the place of your set intension. The sounds used in the sound meditation were taken from the Moses Code, and according to Dr. Dyer by combining the sounds with the mantra you are tapping into the most powerful way to manifest your desires.

What I can tell you is from my experience I found what I was working on to manifest very quickly once I started began meditating along with the mantra and sounds. Anyone who is close to me knows just how long I’ve been working on making my recently fulfilled wishes a reality so I’m very honest when I say they manifested more quickly once I began working with the meditation.

Be sure to check them out. And may all your wishes come true. Faith, trust and a little bit of faerie dust!

My Higher Self

Altar by Living Fae

Affirmation: I AM my higher self.

Try saying that outloud at least 1o times. Let it sink in. Absorb the idea that you are… I am my higher self. What does that mean to you?

I picked up Dr. Wayne Dyer’s Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting audio book today. Then I hopped in the car and began to drive back down the LA freeway to the beaches with my mom. I put the first CD in and began to listen to what Wayne had to say. While I listened intently to every word my mom fell asleep. Every so often she would wake up and yell out, “Wayne’s yelling at me!” or “Where am I?” It was pretty amusing at the time. The funniest part was she seemed to wake up and yell those phrases at the most perfect moment. It seemed to align with everything I was hearing him say.

As I continued to drive Dr. Wayne began to discuss the notion of the higher self and how choosing this course, listening to his CD, was really about committing to the idea that you are your higher self now. As he spoke of this I felt myself aligning with everything he was saying, and at the same time I could feel my ego hesitate on the concept.

When I began my study of uniting with my higher self I was always looking at it in a way that it was me, but it was a me I was working at becoming. A me I communicated with, but was somehow not where I was now. Let’s say I saw this me in another life or dimension. I wasn’t there yet. It was a goal or a journey I was taking to get there. But then Dr. Wayne had me take a new look at it. As I said the words outloud in the car, “I AM my higher self,” I began to have a new understanding of who “I AM” was,  who “I AM” is. I AM is me. I AM is you. I AM is my higher self. I AM is your higher self. Our higher self, I AM, is the the divine being, the spark, the light, that exists within us. Once we can grasp that concept we can release the limitations we have set for ourselves because our higher self is not something we become. It is something we are. It’s something we have always been and will always be.

I AM THAT I AM.

If the knowledge of your higher self is a new concept to you. Think of it as this:

Your higher self is the perfection of who you are. The all knowing. The all powerful. The unlimited. The essense of this perfect self living here on Earth and you act in accordance with how your perfect self lives on Earth. You are perfect. That is which you are. Absorb the thought and allow it to resonate within you. See what transpires from that. I AM LOVE. I AM MY HIGHER SELF. MY HIGHER SELF IS LOVE. YOU ARE LOVE.

Love, light and faerie dust ✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫
